Subject: An Interesting Fragment
An interesting play, of itself, but fragmentary. It is the beginning of a trilogy of plays, but the later sections have been lost. Well read, but giving the same sort of feeling as, say, the movie version of "The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey", that the author now has his pieces in place, and yet the story has ended.
